Display change and screen porblems after_Redmi 5 Plus


Hello i have recently changed the display of my partner mobile phone and yes as you read from the subject of this thread it didnt quite work out XD. So the change consistented on moving battery and the top and bottom tech green thingies (dont know the technical name) to the new display.

So after this was done i am facing the following problems:

1. Display "flickers" like its about to spawn a demon, kind of when you trying to tune your TV if you know what i mean.

2. Screen is completely black, but phone is on, you can notice the two different shapes of black between when phone is off and on. While this hppens i am still able to turn off the device as i know more a less where the turn off bottom pops up when you press the turn off bottom.

3.Screen comes up but the image is a couple of cms dislocated upwards meaning that the cms that are suposed to show up on top appear in the bottom of the screen, but the touch screen is still aligned to as if the image was in the right place.

4.Image works fine but need to press the touch screen a litle harder for it to work.

5. Works fine.

So all this 5 scenarios occur but the question is:

- Could i have possibly damaged a component during while moving the components to the new display?

- Or is this something fixable? prolly need to make sure everything is properly connected?

Maybe this is a random post but would love to hear your expert opinion on this.

Thank you for time.
